Well I have done that. Altho you might have considered that since its a server it might have been a co-located one somewhere far away. :)

But no, its in my house. I have done what I can without taking it down. If finding the offending program and limiting its use doesnt solve the problem then I guess I will have to announce to all the various domains, emails, mmorpgs, that there will be some down time. Then I will open it up and see if some dustball is trapped someplace, and possible keep the case off.
